My Beef With Pokémon Go

“Hello, my name is MrsEnginerd and I play Pokémon Go because I like it.” It is hard to admit than in my mid 30s I enjoy playing Pokémon Go. Maybe it is the half Millennial in me or it could be the competitiveness of the Gen Xer half but there is something about this clever […]
